Management Consultant Suzanne Howard believes that leaders need not live a stressful life. So do I.

To help you maximize your leadership potential, here is a ten-point strategy she suggests:

* 1. Success: Most leaders have a sense of purpose, a mission that sets their standards for success. Develop and follow your own high standards.

* 2. Knowledge: Start with knowing yourself. Maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses.

* 3. Information: A manager has to know how to do something; a leader has to know why in order to do it.

* 4. Love: Begin by loving yourself. It is a prerequisite for loving others.

* 5. Learning: Leaders turn their errors and failures into learning experiences that contribute to their future successes.

* 6. Persistence: Persistence means overcoming your fear of failure and realizing that no one succeeds on their first try every time.

* 7. Opportunity: "The best way to miss success is to miss the opportunity", so says Mr. Willoughby Lewis, an insurance adjuster and good friend.

* 8. Winning: Part of this is an attitude or perception. Winners concentrate on their strengths and make things happen; losers let things happen.

* 9. Enthusiasm: The secret to having enthusiasm is working at a job you like. You can always learn the technical skills to work at a number of jobs, but when you work at a job you like your enthusiasm naturally shows through.

* 10. Renewal: Take time to be good to yourself. Have fun. Go shopping. Take a trip. Reward yourself. These are different ways to renew your vitality, your enthusiasm, and your focus.

Remember: When you maximize your potential, everyone wins. When you don't, we all lose.
